We work to create student leaders on campus who impact society from their very first semester and go on to enroll in the top graduate programs and receive the best employment their fields.

By combining the small size and feel of a close-knit community of scholars with the curriculum, faculty, and research capabilities of a top ranked public research university, the Purdue Honors College provides the University’s most motivated students with a one of a kind experience. As the University’s only residential college, where students live and learn together, the time outside of the classroom holds as much opportunity for personal growth as the time inside.
